As an ever increasing number of HIV-infected persons develop AIDS, treating the manifestations associated with HIV infection has become a new challenge to health sectors in developing countries.
Given resource constraints of health systems before the AIDS epidemic, there is an urgent need to start examining ways in which health care can be delivered to the large number of AIDS patients, without infringing on other primary health care activities.
This paper reviews current experience with AIDS patient care management in developing countries and determines some of the areas where further research is crucial.
